Why S-L for Sophomore Students?
Traditional-age sophomore students go through major life transitions in their sophomore year (Schaller, 2007).
- Sophomore slump

- Opportunities for internships and community service
- Benefits for career planning

Engaging Sophomores through service-learning is an initiative that is committed to promoting student success. Title V supports the development and implementation of service-learning courses at the sophomore level in order to facilitate connectedness with the course content, advanced competency in the content area, and enhanced learning autonomy.
Service-learning provides students with a sense of academic purpose and civic awareness.
